15 for 2015: How did I do?

In 2015, I highlighted 15 series that were on my radar- either to finish or to start! Here is how I did with this challenge…

Series I finished…

-Splintered-

Splintered (Splintered, #1)Unhinged (Splintered, #2)Ensnared (Splintered, #3)

I read Unhinged and Ensnared.

I read Champion.

Something Strange and Deadly (Something Strange and Deadly, #1)A Darkness Strange and Lovely (Something Strange and Deadly, #2)Strange and Ever After (Something Strange and Deadly, #3)

I read A Darkness Strange and Lovely. Strange and Ever After is coming soon.

Series I didn’t finish and have no intentions of finishing…

-Birthmarked-

Birthmarked (Birthmarked #1)Prized (Birthmarked, #2)Promised

I didn’t enjoy Prized, so didn’t and won’t continue the series…

 -Unwind Dystology-

Unwind (Unwind, #1)Unwholly (Unwind, #2)UnSouled (Unwind, #3)

This one surprised me. I didn’t really enjoy Unwholly, so don’t want to read the rest. A shame!

-The Darkest Minds-

The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds, #1)

I didn’t enjoy this book, so won’t be continuing!

-Across The Universe-

Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)

Unfortunately I didn’t connect with this book!

 Series I started-

Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy, #1)Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)The Giver (The Giver, #1)Awaken (Awaken, #1)Ten Tiny Breaths (Ten Tiny Breaths, #1)Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna, #1)

Unspoken– I’m almost finished this trilogy! (Unspoken, Untold)

Shiver– I started this trilogy, not my favourite trilogy, but decent enough! (Shiver)

The Giver– I’m almost finished this quartet. One book to go! (The Giver, Gathering Blue, The Messenger (review to follow))

Awaken– I started this series, I remember enjoying it at the time, but it’s story isn’t sticking with me. (Awaken)

Ten Tiny Breaths– The ending really annoyed me, but I’m intrigued enough to continue! (Ten Tiny Breaths)

Anna Dressed In Blood– I enjoyed the first book! (Anna Dressed In Blood)

In 2016, I shall continue to conquer my series. Look at the page HERE for series I am aiming to finish!

15 for 2015

In 2014, I highlighted 14 series that were on my radar- either to finish or to start! I’ve decided to do the same for this year as I think it’s a great way to encourage myself to finish off series, or start series that I already own and don’t need to buy! I can totally justify this as I finished many series last year doing the same thing…so I’m ready to begin more! 😉

Series I need to finish or become up to date with ready for the next release-

-Splintered-

Splintered (Splintered, #1)Unhinged (Splintered, #2)Ensnared (Splintered, #3)

I have only read the first book in the Splintered series. I need to read Unhinged and then catch up with Ensnared which comes out in a few days!

-Something Strange and Deadly-

Something Strange and Deadly (Something Strange and Deadly, #1)A Darkness Strange and Lovely (Something Strange and Deadly, #2)Strange and Ever After (Something Strange and Deadly, #3)

Again, I have read the first book in this series. I need to read A Darkness Strange and Lovely and Strange and Ever After.

-Birthmarked-

Birthmarked (Birthmarked #1)Prized (Birthmarked, #2)Promised

There’s a theme running through the first three series on this list… I’ve started the first but not yet continued. I am looking forward to reading Prized and Promised. Aren’t these covers just beautiful?

-Legend-

Legend (Legend, #1)Prodigy (Legend, #2)Champion (Legend, #3)

Wahoo! A series where I only have one left to read. I’m hoping to read Champion ASAP so I can finish off this series!

-Unwind Dystology-

Unwind (Unwind, #1)Unwholly (Unwind, #2)UnSouled (Unwind, #3)

I started Unwind in 2014, after hearing lots of people rave about it. I aim to continue the series with Unwholly and Unsouled.

-Burn For Burn-

Burn for Burn (Burn for Burn, #1)Fire with Fire (Burn for Burn, #2)Ashes to Ashes (Burn for Burn, #3)

I have read the first two books in this series. I completely forgot about Ashes to Ashes, but I’m looking forward to finishing the trilogy!

-The Summer I Turned Pretty-

The Summer I Turned Pretty (Summer, #1)It's Not Summer Without You (Summer, #2)We'll Always Have Summer (Summer, #3)

I have only got to read We’ll Always Have Summer and then I’m finished with this sweet trilogy!

Series I aim to start-

Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy, #1)The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds, #1)Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)The Giver (The Giver, #1)Awaken (Awaken, #1)Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)Ten Tiny Breaths (Ten Tiny Breaths, #1)Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna, #1)

-Mara Dyer-

8591107 12950372 15768409

I have so much love for Michelle Hodkin’s writing. This series is seriously crazy, but yet still so readable. It’s messed with my mind, and I although the ending wasn’t exactly what I wanted I still absolutely adore this series.

-Shatter Me-

13455782 13104080 13188676

I’ve absolutely been sucked into this world. Ignite Me was a decent ending to the series!

-Under The Never Sky-

11594257 14742334 14288998

I haven’t loved this series as much as others I’ve read, but I was still intrigued enough to see how it all ends. Into The Still Blue was a solid ending!

-Chaos Walking-

2118745 6043849 8100904

I can’t believe I managed to complete this beast of a series! Very pleased I did though. It was incredibly enjoyable. I ❤ Patrick Ness.

Series incomplete:

-Matched-

7735333 15812814 13125947

I read Matched, but I just could not get on with Crossed, so I stopped reading! Not bad out of a selection of so many series on my radar in 2014!

929777412958103

Series that I wanted to start and have done so!:

9859436 9462812 9275658 8763666

I am so excited to read Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard. I’ve heard brilliant things about it. I’m also looking forward to Die For Me and Birthmarked. These are books from series that I want to start this year.

I really think The Wrong Boy by Suzy Zail will be an interesting read. I love historical fiction. This book sounds harrowing but definitely one that I think might grip me from the start.

What are you reading this week? Feel free to leave your link to your Stacking The Shelves or haul post and I’ll stop by your blog.

14 series on my radar for 2014…

I’ve mentioned before that there are so many series that I have yet to read, or series that I’ve started but not got around to finishing. It seems that almost every book I read these days is a series! I can’t keep up!

Series that I need to complete:

(Click on the book cover for my review, if I’ve read it already!)

-Mara Dyer-

8591107 12950372 15768409

I have so much love for Michelle Hodkin’s writing. This series is seriously crazy, but yet still so readable. It’s messed with my mind, and I NEED to know how it ends with The Retribution Of Mara Dyer. I hope I don’t hate the ending.

-Shatter Me-

13455782 13104080 13188676

I’ve absolutely been sucked into this world. I can’t wait to see how it finishes! I hope Ignite Me lives up to expectations!

-Under The Never Sky-

11594257 14742334 14288998

I haven’t loved this series as much as others I’ve read in 2013, but I’m still intrigued enough to see how it all ends. Into The Still Blue is the final book in the series.

-Chaos Walking-

2118745 6043849 8100904

This series is complete, but I’ve only read the first book in the series. I want to get around to reading the other two this year!

-The Lunar Chronicles-

cinder imagesCAUSDFEL 13206828

This is the only series on this list that won’t be complete by the end of 2014. I’m really enjoying it so far, and I’m looking forward to Cress being released this year. Winter will be published in 2015.

-Matched-

7735333 15812814 13125947

This series is complete, but I need to finish it! It hasn’t blown me away but I’m still intrigued to read it!

-The Selection-

10507293 16248068 15844362

This series is my guilty pleasure. It may not be the greatest piece of literature, but it’s fun.

I shall hopefully only have one series left to complete out of this selection (which is the last book in The Lunar Chronicles) if I managed to finish the series listed!

Series that I want to start:

(The first book in the series is listed, with the link going to Goodreads!)

9859436 9462812 9275658 8763666 9297774 12958103 9413044

I hope to begin these series this year! I’ve been meaning to start them for a while now.
